Alan and Sarah Bekkum and their six children live on the farm in southwestern Wisconsin’s Driftless Coulee region that has been in Sarah’s family for four generations. Alan, a licensed Wisconsin butter and cheese maker for 25+ years, produces artisan cheeses from goats’, sheeps’ and cows’ milk and fresh summer butter, made only during the warm months when the cows are out to pasture. One of his best-selling cheese, Capriko, is made from a combination of goats’ and cows’ milk. Alan explains that he developed the hand-crafted, semi-hard cheese with a smooth, sweet, nutty flavor as a way to get people who thought they didn’t care for goats’ milk to give it a try. Other Nordic Creamery cheeses favorites are mild, aged and smoked cheddars as well as fresh cheese curds. Al also offers flavored butters that are sure to spice up your cooking: Red Pepper Butter, Garlic and Basil Butter, Maple Syrup Butter, and Cultured Butters.
